      • Go back to the previous navigation method or give us the choice

        Was just upgraded and that was a mistake for me. The old Vertical & Horizontal navigation allows quicker switches between task notes vs having to pull up on the left vertical bar.

        • Simple mind-map functionality

          Adding mind-maps to OneNote seems to be popular. This could be added simply by allowing lines to attach to boxes, letting users quickly create mind maps with relatively little back-end programming added.

          • to do lists

            Would be great if One note for ipad could sort all the To-Do items into one folder/area on the program. Currently I have many to-do items in all my folders - would like these all to be grouped together for ease. thanks

            • Previous version of OneNote Please!!

              The new layout of OneNote is a mistake (iphone version). I like to view all my tabs at the top while viewing all pages in the selected tab. This new version added an unwanted extra step by having to navigate away from seeing all the tabs. Developing team please revert back to the previous user experience.

              • Direct printing!!!

                Look, every update you do you say that you have "listened to [our] feedback." How long have users been asking you to add direct printing to the iOS app??? Years. Please just get it done.

                • Proper Notebook Format PDF Export

                  Allow users to choose a page style (A4, A5), with proper pagination like MS Word and show page numbers if so desired. This format could be exported to PDF, along with rule/grid lines if the user had them for the file.

                  • Fix It So I Don't Keep Having To Re-Enter My Password

                    Not every time but at least once a day refuses to sync and have to "Tap to enter your password" when I entered it only yesterday or the day before.

                    It's like the password "wears out". enter it and it remembers it for a bit but then forgets it, you have to re-enter, works for a bit then it wears-out/forgets again.

                    If it forgot my notes like it forgets my password ussers would be screaming

                    • Constantly having to login

                      On onenote for iPad with my personal account I have to login every time I want to use my notebook. I am using dual authentication with google Authenticator. My work notebooks don't have this issue.

                      • Argh!!! You have destroyed my productivity in OneNote.

                        Please, give me back my navigation tabs across the top, rather than forcing me to us multiple gestures to accomplish what was previously a simple one-touch operation.

                        • Tabs UI across top option (as in earlier versions)

                          Offer Option in oneNote 16.0+ to have tabs across top vs side as in earlier versions. I find all nav cascading on one side cumbersome, and tabs at top with further links on side was a favorite feature. To accommodate those who prefer new UI, offer "classic" tabs as an option that can be turned on or left off.

                          • Please enable the Tabs at the top that was in the previous version!!

                            Please bring back the option to have the Tabs at the top! The new update is horrible and now everyone that loved the option to have the tabs at the top has to "relearn" this new UI. The previous version 15.32 had an option to have the tabs on the side (like it is in this new update) or at the top that we could scroll back and forth. Please, please bring this feature back. Ill have to find another app otherwise as this is not good for me!

                              • Enable automatic drawing for OneNote on iPad with Apple Pencil

                                On Word and Excel on the iPad where it isn't that useful (for my use case, anyway), there is an option in the Settings app to toggle on or off always inking with the pencil. I turned that off in both because in those apps 99% of the time if I'm using the Pencil it's to navigate.

                                But in OneNote, where I use the pencil to take notes, I always have to manually go in and turn on drawing for the Pencil. I would love for it to just start auto inking when the pencil is used like Word and…

                                • Ability to use custom tags created on the desktop app on the iPad app.

                                  This makes the mobile app almost useless for me as I use custom tags extensively to organize my notes on the full desktop apps.

                                    • Hyperlinks and tag search are imperative for iOS.

                                      Mobile functionality is a waste of time without being able to hyperlink tasks and search tags. Desktop only is not how people work.

                                        I've used OneNote since it was introduced and it is my favorite Utility program, perfect for process documentation. The Apple version that fOrces me to abandon Google drive is forcing me to choose. I DO NOT LIKE THAT. CHARGE ME FOR THE PROGRAM, BUT LET ME MANAGE WHERE I STORE AND SHARE MY FILES.

                                        • Much closer feature parity between the iPad version of Onenote and the Windows UWP version of Onenote

                                          The windows UWP version of Onenote is much more capable than the iPad Pro version. I would like to see these features brought to the iPad as well as the other versions of Onenote to have feature parity and to give a seamless experience when switching between devices
